Various Artists - Intelligent Toys 2 (Sutemos007)
8 months have passed since the release of the first volume of Intelligent Toys. We thought that is impossible to do a better compilation for virtual label at that time. But as the second volume proves it is always possible to do better Â you just have to want and do your best to make it real. At some points it has even overcome our biggest expectations. So there is hardly anything more to say Â 24 names 9 of which have never published their music on virtual labels can tell you everything else. Besides, all of 27 tracks have been never released before Â all of them are exclusive for Intelligent Toys 2 and some of the tracks are already planned for real publishing.
As in the first volume of the compilation musical content is very varying so everybody can find his own favourite tracks. We tried to keep the harmony between various styles of electronic music. So you will find different sorts of stuff here: from monotonic ambient to light indie/instrumental, from sweet or crazy IDM to chillout drum & bass which was produced by the only one Lithuanian artist of IT2 Â Liudas Svirskas.
It already became standard that every release of Sutemos is accompanied by a bunch of artworks. Intelligent Toys 2 is not an exclusion. It will feature 19 pieces of art made by our friends that illustrate the idea of child/toy/doll. But some of the artists have extended this format by improvising with moods and cosiness. We are very grateful to them.
This compilation Is dedicated to Julija.

Two other tracks really grabbed my attention on this compil, the first is Praveen's 'Vespers', a beautiful hip-hop piece with airy pianos and strings and Sabi's grandiose ' Uki Reflection '. Other stand out tracks are sense's somewhat comedic ' Oh yeah Baby ' , maps and diagram's beautiful 'siaptik', Unit21's 'Yellow' and ' O nei remix' and Lackluster's 080598. In my opinion, if these were the only tracks on the compilation it would be one of the best netaudio releases of all time. But as it is right now, it is a compilation of mediocre tracks amidst a few great ones.
Subject: Utterly brilliant!
This is to net audio what Artificial Intelligence or Clicks and Cuts 1 were to electronic music: a manifest.
Besides anyone promoting Ruxpin tracks, a personal fav of mine, desserves 5 stars.
I'm amazed, really.
